Questions to think about before you hear the Sermon:
On the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says :
In Matthew 5:10-12 New King James Version (NKJV)
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
What is Jesus saying here? What is He after? What’s it mean to be persecuted here?
How are people being Persecuted today in the World?
